Description: This invaluable reference begins with a synoptic survey of key events and developments, entitled "Asia at a Glance", designed to provide an overview of key developments in various fields of activity throughout the continent. Thirty-two chronologies on individual countries follow, which, in conjunction with a detailed index, allow readers to find specific information quickly and efficiently, whether they seek the date for the invention of the iron plow or gunpowder, the fall of the Han Dynasty in China, or Ho Chi Minh's declarations of Vietnamese independence.

The Columbia Chronologies of Asian History and Culture features:
-- three discrete chronologies on (1) Politics/History, (2) Art/Culture/Religion, and (3) Science/Economics/Everyday Life for each of Asia's three major cultures -- China, India, and Japan -- as well as a combined chronology for each of the other nations;
-- detailed entries (often including day and month as well as year) of countless historical events as well as important milestones in religion, philosophy, literature, and the arts;
-- entries on technological developments and natural events (famines, floods, etc.) affecting the lives of ordinary people
-- independence dates for all countries; and
-- authoritative and accessibly written entries, prepared under the direction of a team of Asian scholars from Columbia, Harvard, and other major research universities.
